Had an enjoyable long weekend here in late October and wasn't disappointed. We booked a room with a seaview which is one of the bonuses of this hotel and I would think makes it extremely popular.

The room had a four poster bed and sea views - excellent breakfast and friendly staff The hotel is located on the esplanade within easy walking distance of the town centre. Plenty of local restaurants and shops within the town walls The beach is sandy and at low tide you can walk around to the harbour

Our well behaved dog was also made to feel very welcome. The décor is very tea room like, not at all like a café which was very nice. Newspapers to read,... More

I love this place. Our family always stop in for afternoon tea every time we visit Tenby. The food is of an excellent standard ranging from paninis to more traditional sandwiches and cream teas brought by polite and discreet staff. The setting is calm and tranquil. No blaring music! Instead lovely views over to Caldey I also recently booked my... More

Tenby is a place I often come to if I need to clear my head; unable to get away for a family holiday as planned, I spent a couple of happy nights here instead. It is quite an old fashioned place in terms of decor and furnishings, but I found that cosy and reassuring. There is thoughtful attention to detail... More
